look: 4.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Pours a deep, deep brown, nearly black color, with a tan-ish head that dissipated much quicker than I would expect. Body looked to be very syrupy, thick, and sticky. Sweet aroma, full of vanilla and cream with hints of caramel and burnt brown sugar on the back burner. Taste is heaviest on the vanilla, with a slight milkiness to it, followed by caramel, brown sugar, and toffee notes coming in at the end. The vanilla taste is very, very dense and syrupy and sweet, almost sickeningly sweet. It feels like my teeth are being coated with layers of sugar. The 9.6% ABV starts coming through as the beer warms up and it makes the heavy vanilla sweetness even heavier and a little too overbearing. As expected, thick, syrup-like body with carbonation that was a little too low.

Wonderful smell, wonderful idea - I love creme brulee. However, I feel the execution was off on this one. It was a little too overpowering with the vanilla and the sweetness wasn't balanced, thus making it difficult to drink during the lower half of the glass. I'd like to see this one toned down and refined a bit, I think it has a chance to be very good.
